Mint Plants are not for the average gardener. I planted mint when we moved in. I kept it in a pot because of its' aggressiveness. Can't figure out what happened to the Pot! Now I must tame it. I have two types.
This is Chocolate Mint. I use it in recipes for desserts.
Peppermint is the one pictured here. this one is used for a lot of thing. In sauces, Salads, Desserts and simply to chew on. Although it is work to maintain the plants perimeter, I enjoy having the plants.
